Mysterium Ecclesiae

On the interpretation of Church documents, issued by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, 1973.See Francis Schussler Fiorenza and John Galvin, Systematic Theology 2011, p. 39. "This document affirmed several points (1) the incompleteness of every doctrinal affirmation; (2) the contextuality of doctrinal affirmations insofar s they are responses to particular questions ;3) the linguisticality of all doctrines (4); the distinction between the truth affirmed in a particular doctrinal formulation and the philosophical categories and worldviews used to express that truth.
